Blog Tour / Book Musings - Killer in the band by Lauren Carr

Blurb :

Summer of Love & Murder

Joshua’s eldest son, Joshua “J.J.” Thornton Jr., has graduated at the top of his class from law school and returns home to spend the summer studying for the bar exam. However, to Joshua’s and Cameron’s shock and dismay, J.J. moves into the main house at Russell Ridge Farm, the largest dairy farm in the Ohio Valley, to rekindle a romance with Suellen Russell, a onetime leader of a rock group who’s twice his age. Quickly, they learn that she has been keeping a deep dark secret.

The move brings long-buried tensions between the father and son to the surface. But when a brutal killer strikes, the Lovers in Crime must set all differences aside to solve the crime before J.J. ends up in the cross hairs of a murderer.

Praise for Lauren Carr’s Mysteries:

“Lauren Carr could give Agatha Christie a run for her money!”

​- Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R

“As always, Lauren Carr brings an action-packed story that is almost impossible to put down. Her mystery plots have so many twists and turns that I didn’t know if I was coming or going. And the action just didn’t stop from the very beginning till the very end.” - Melina Mason, Melina’s Book Reviews

My Musings :

I received the ebook free of charge for honest review.

I have always liked the author's works. She writes a book which is well rounded in characters and themes and plot lines. This book is no different.

The book as usual has a host of characters to keep track of. This is a characteristic of Lauren Carr's books. Though it is a bit hard to keep the characters separate, it becomes easier as time passes. And all of them are unique and add their own flair to the story. It's fun meeting them and understanding each of them. Most of the characters are ones I have already read about from Joshua to Cameron to JJ. So it was easy to follow the story without much confusion.

The author covers a myriad of themes from younger man-older woman romance to family dynamics to mysteries. Actually this book has quite a few side plots with their own mysteries to deal with. At times, the pace of the book felt slow but the way the author kept exploring the maze of the tale, it kept me interested till the end.

It is rather a fast read inspite of the slower pace because of the author's writing style. The author does know how to keep a reader's attention without straying. It was the usual great read expected from the author and I was in no way disappointed.

My rating : 5/5
